This WD TV Live housing is very small, and as you will see in the pictures below is very unobtrusive. You can pretty much put it anywhere (within your cable's reach) and know it won't be a visual distraction.
In the front view below you can see that he understated black box has a WD logo and product name off to the left hand side. Also hidden behind that panel are the power LED indicator and IR receiver. A USB port is available on the right hand side and on top you can see some of the devices capabilities are listed.
On the back you'll find the rest of the connectivity options. These include the power port, SPDIF output, Ethernet jack, HDMI port, USB port, and composite output connection.
On the bottom of the device you'll find some mounting options and the hard reset button. The array of holes provides all the passive cooling required for the internal components.
The remote - while not the smallest for devices of this type - fits your hand well with a contoured bottom. The placement of keys is very intuitive for the most frequently used functions allowing me to use it almost immediately in the dark without having to look at it. It is also programmable to provide short cuts for the WD device only. Remote functionality was very fast but it is line of sight only (more on that later).
